FOUR BOARDED up council houses in St Cronan's estate in Swords are being repaired with a view to re-letting the properties.Asked for a report on the properties by Cllr Darragh Butler (FF), the council said: 'There are four void dwellings in St. Cronan's Estate, which are at various stages of prelet repairs. Pre-let repairs are ongoing in two dwellings with target completion dates in November. 'Extensive refurbishment and construction works are required to a further dwelling to accommodate a special needs applicant. ' This will necessitate the construction of an additional bedroom and the county architect has been requested to expedite the preparation of the tender. The remaining dwelling is currently with the county architect and in preparation to go to tender.
